Buttercups are such happy flowers and yet again your image is perfect, please tell me what camera you have.
Thanks Christina, I used an old Canon 500d with a basic 18-55mm lens for that photo. Wisley have their wild areas on slopes so although I was crouched down, the slope and early sunshine made it an easy photo to take.
Lovely photograph with the light illuminating the petals. No sign of a buttercup yet, but yesterday I found the first patch of bird’s-foot trefoil starting to flower.
We are not so far apart with that flower, on our local walk we’ve only seen one Birds-foot trefoil in flower too.
We have plenty of them too and also in our lawn where they flower dwarf-size…probably or very likely a nightmare for all lovers of an English lawn. 😉 Happy wednesday, Julie!
Your lawn sounds perfect to me, we have daises, clover, dandelions, mouse ears – Cerastium fontanei, but only a few creeping Buttercups. We need more! Happy Wednesday too Annette.
A photo full of sunshine! Lovely.
Buttercups always make me smile, they are so cheerful, a field full is even better.
Wisley is a garden full of beautiful plants and the buttercups held their own.
Omygosh this is delightful!
Delightful is just the word for Buttercups! 🙂
I agree with Christina. Beautiful picture Julie. I’ve heard of buttercups all my life but am wondering where they are in my area. Will have to look for some.
Susie, I hope you do find some, a field full of Buttercups is a wonderful sight.

Buttercups and Dandelions always make our fields look so bright and cheerful.(If they haven’t been sprayed).
I don’t know why they are called Buttercups, cows will not eat them!
You had me wondering about the name Brian, apparently, its scientific name Ranunculaceae is based on the Latin word rānunculus, which means “little frog”. I am guessing its the shape and colour for its common name! I have just read Buttercups are poisonous to Cows too.
I like how the light hits the top of the flowers, Julie.
Thanks Cynthia, sunshine always make a difference, hope you are having some good weather where you are. 🙂
It’s turning sunny and lovely again. I like a cool spring, but not cold, so it’s been perfect today. I hope it lasts for a while. How are things there today?
Sounds lovely Cynthia, we are just starting a 3 day weekend as we have a bank holiday, mixed forecast and lots of jobs lined up but really nice to have an extra day off!
Lovely photograph of buttercups and grasses Julie! We have plenty of Creeping Buttercup in our garden. I would rather have Meadow Buttercup as the flowers are shinier and the runners of Creeping Buttercup insist on making straight for the flowerbeds!
Creeping buttercups are very determined, for something so pretty they can be a bit of a thug!
A real smiley wildflower. 🙂
